    THE ONLY ONES IN CHARGE IT SEEMS IS THE POLITICAL LOBBYISTS AND CORPORATE AMERICA.

    THERE ARE STILL THREE MILLION UNEMPLOYED AMERICANS SINCE LATE LAST DECEMBER, STILL WITHOUT AN EXTENSION BILL. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE TOTOALLY FAILED THESE FAMILIES, AND LEFT THEM FALLING INTO FINANCIAL RUIN AND POVERTY. FOR THE PAST SIX MONTHS THE REPUBLICANS HAVE MADE EVERY ATTEMPT TO KILL THE BILL IN THE SENATE. WHILE THESE FAMILIES HAVE FACED EVICTIONS, HOME FORECLOSURES, BANKRUPTCY, AND HOMELESSNESS, THE REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS WALKED AWAY FROM THE ISSUE, LEAVING THESE FAMILIES WITHOUT HOPE OR HELP. THEY HAVE SHOWN A TOTAL LACK OF COMPASSION AND COMMON DECENCY TOWARDS THESE UNFORTUNATE PEOPLE. BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN AID FOR THE UKRAINE HAS BEEN APPROVED, BUT NOTHING FOR THESE AMERICAN FAMILIES HERE AT HOME IN OUR COUNTRY. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH THE PULSE OF THE NATION. THEY FAILED THESE PEOPLE.
